Support of our UNLV Saturday Morning Community Clinics helps provide preventive oral health care and education to underserved populations who would otherwise be unable to access quality dental services. Our faculty and students volunteer their time and talent to ensure the dental needs of our local men, women and children are met, regardless of their ability to pay.
Sgt. Clint Ferrin Memorial Clinic
Student John Ferrin started the clinic in 2007 in memory of his brother, Sgt. Clint Ferrin, to provide dental care for local veterans, who otherwise have limited or no access to care. The clinic takes place eight to nine times per year and treats approximately 50 patients per clinic. To date, free treatments have been provided to more than 500 veterans.
Saturday Morning Women’s Clinic
This clinic provides free dental care to domestic violence victims within the Las Vegas area which helps them seek employment. Patients for this clinic are temporary residents at the Shade Tree Women’s Shelter or other local shelters. Our faculty and students volunteer nine times per year and provide more than $25,000 in free care to about 80 women.
UNLV Absolute Dental Saturday Morning Children's Clinic
Initially started to offer follow-up care to underserved children who benefitted from Give Kids a Smile; the UNLV Absolute Dental Saturday Morning Children's Clinic takes place nine times per year. Each year, this clinic provides close to $200,000 in free care to children ages 5-12.
